Double Feature Treat Wife As Full Partner To Curb Her Extravagance Ruth Millet In a letter from - husband who is having "wife trouble" is this revealing sentence: "I've never told my wife exactly what my salary is. If I did, she'd see to it that we spent it all and then some." How can a grown man fail to understand that if he treats his wife like a child about money matters, he can expect her to act like a child about money? The woman who knows so little about family finances that she doesn't even know how much her husband earns is bound to be resentful at being shown so little trust and respect. And a resentful woman always has ways of getting even. One way is to act completely irresponsible about money—to figure that anything she can get out of her husband is just so much velvet, and that if he is determined to hold onto the purse strings he can do all the worrying about financial matters. No man should expect or even hope that his wife will be thrifty and economical and share some of the responsibility for making the family's income fit its real needs unless the wife is recognized as a full business partner. That means that she not only knows exactly what her husband earns but that she has a right to decide with him how the money should be spent. The man who keeps his income a secret, or gives his wife an allowance, or makes her ask for every cent she spends, is just asking for an extravagant, irresponsible wife. The man who treats his wife like L business partner will usually find that she accepts the responsibility she is allowed to share. son, Jodie,.

Terry and Shelma Hanners are visiting Mr. and Mrs. Leon Miller of St. Louis. Powder Is Now Boxed For Uses By ALICIA HART NEA Beauty Editor Everyone has come to expect the most lavish bottling of perfume. Women hope that the decanters will grace their dressing tables long after the last drop has been taken. Many of the creams also come in jars and bottles that add to the beauty of one's make-up setting. But somehow powder has missed the glamour touch. Most women leave their makeup in the plain cardboard boxes in which they generally come • A .leading cosmetic 'house is first to do something about this situation. It has just introduced a box containing its powder that is designed for a permanent place on the dressing table- The box, covered with a velvety cafe au lait tooled with gold, and featuring a jeweled clasp, can be continued in use as a powder box or will serve equally well as a jewel* ry'case when the powder is used. "The company suggests the new box as an unusual gift for the week end hostess. The box may be presented with 'a gift certificate, so there is no worry about selecting the proper shade. When the recipient presents her box and gift certificate at the cosmetic counter, she will have a shade blended to her skin tones. . When rolls or muffins become too hard, sprinkle them with water, place them in a brown paper bag and warm them in the oven for a few minutes.
